  • To Say Nothing of the Dog

    To Say Nothing of the Dog by Connie Willis

    To Say Nothing of the Dog by Connie Willis is $1.99! I see this one pop in the comments from time to time, especially in relation to reading favorites or keeper shelf picks. Have you read this one?

    From Connie Willis, winner of multiple Hugo and Nebula Awards, comes a comedic romp through an unpredictable world of mystery, love, and time travel…

    Ned Henry is badly in need of a rest. He’s been shuttling between the 21st century and the 1940s searching for a Victorian atrocity called the bishop’s bird stump. It’s part of a project to restore the famed Coventry Cathedral, destroyed in a Nazi air raid over a hundred years earlier.

    But then Verity Kindle, a fellow time traveler, inadvertently brings back something from the past. Now Ned must jump back to the Victorian era to help Verity put things right–not only to save the project but to prevent altering history itself.

  • Goalie Interference

    Goalie Interference by Avon Gale

    Goalie Interference by Avon Gale & Piper Vaughn is $1.99! This is an m/m hockey romance and Aarya mentioned this one on a previous Hide Your Wallet new releases post:

    I loved the previous book in the Hat Trick series, and can’t wait to revisit the Atlanta Venom hockey team for another m/m romance (they’re rival goalies on the same team!).

    It’s goalie vs. goalie in this brand-new enemies-to-lovers hockey romance from Avon Gale and Piper Vaughn… 

    Ryu Mori has had a stellar season as goalie for the Atlanta Venom. So when he’s called into management’s office, he’s expecting to hear he’s the new starting goalie for the team, not that some new guy—an incredibly hot, annoyingly bratty rookie—is here to compete for his spot.

    Not everyone gets to play in the best league in the world. Emmitt Armstrong knows that, and he’s not about to waste the opportunity after grinding his way from the bottom to the top. If the Venom is looking for a meek, mild-mannered pushover, they’ve got the wrong guy.

    Ryu doesn’t want to admit the other goalie’s smart mouth turns him on. Beating Armstrong at practice feels good, sure, but there are other, more fun ways to shut his rival up.

    In this league, it’s winner takes all. But there’s more to life than winning, and if Emmitt and Ryu can get past their egos and competitive natures, they might just discover they work better as partners than they ever imagined possible.

  • Chasing Red

    Chasing Red by Isabelle Ronin

    Chasing Red by Isabelle Ronin is $1.99! This one was originally published on Wattpad and has an unhoused heroine who winds up living with the hero. Readers say this one is high on angst and drama; it also ends on a cliffhanger.

    They said she was going to be my ruin…
    Then let her ruin me.

    Caleb Lockhart has everything—wealth, adoration, a brilliant future. Until a chance encounter with a siren in a red dress changes everything.  Until he meets the woman he dubs Red.

    Veronica Strafford’s past makes it hard for her to trust anyone. Now, kicked out of her apartment, she reluctantly accepts Caleb’s offer for a place to stay.

    Caleb feels intensely drawn to Veronica. And, for the first time in his life, he really wants something—someone. Too bad Veronica’s heart might just be the one thing Caleb can’t win.

  • The Highland Fling

    The Highland Fling by Meghan Quinn

    The Highland Fling by Meghan Quinn is $2.49 at Amazon! This is the only non-KDD in the batch. This is a contemporary romance with a grumpy Scottish hero. I’ve always been curious about Quinn’s contemporary romances. Would you recommend them?

    In this steamy tale by USA Today bestselling author Meghan Quinn, an American searching for her purpose escapes to a Scottish town but finds more questions than answers when she meets a brooding yet handsome handyman.

    Freshly fired from her third job in a row, Bonnie St. James has lost her way. So when she and her best friend stumble upon a “help wanted” post to run a coffee shop in the Scottish Highlands, they apply on a whim. Who knows? Maybe traveling to a new place is just what she needs to figure out her next move.

    When the friends arrive in the tiny idyllic town of Corsekelly, they instantly fall for the gorgeous Highland landscape and friendly townspeople. But Bonnie finds a less-than-warm welcome in Rowan MacGregor, the rugged local handyman. Busy wrestling his own demons, Rowan’s in no mood to deal with the quirky American—even if she is a bonny lass.

    As Bonnie and Rowan’s paths inevitably cross, insults—and sparks—fly. Can the pair build on their similarities to help each other find purpose and direction…and maybe romance too? Or will their passionate tempers fling them apart?

    I find Meghan Quinn to be really hit or miss. My fave books by her are probably The Highland Fling and Runaway Groomsman. Both are lighthearted fun. I DNF’d Royally Not Ready and Untying the Knot. She seems to like writing chaotic characters, and when it comes across as natural to the character, I find them enjoyable. The problem is that other characters seem like stereotypes (Mysterious Maniac Pixie Dream Girl TM), and then the books become a slog. YMMV

  2. Nancy says:

    I would recommend anything by Connie Willis, and To Say Nothing of the Dog is fun. Also consider reading Three Men in a Boat (To Say Nothing of the Dog) by Jerome K. Jerome, which inspired her book.

  3. EC Spurlock says:

    Huge Connie Willis fan, and To Say Nothing Of The Dog was my gateway drug. It’s a great place to start with her work as it connects with several other of her books and gives you a taste of how her time travel system works while engaging in a historical-set rom com. If you like old-fashioned comedies a la Tracy and Hepburn it’s right up your alley.

  4. Leah says:

    Chasing Red is on Webtoons now too! It just started and so is only a few episodes so far, but the art is gorgeous.

  5. PamG says:

    I see that Thus Was Adonis Murdered is $1.99 on Amazon. This is the first of the short but much lamented Hilary Tamar mystery series. There are four books and none of them cost more than 7.99. I remember really enjoying these back in the mumble-mumble late 20th centure, so I’m delighted to see them reissued as ebooks in 2023.

    As I recall, they deal with the adventures of a group of mostly young lawyers in chambers in London. Hilary Tamar is a more senior mentor type who bestows wisdom and dryly humorous commentary on their juniors. One of the more intriguing features of this series is that Tamar’s gender is never revealed. This series is very British indeed and might appeal to lovers of Wodehouse or Rumpole of the Bailey, especially the latter.

  6. spinsterrevival says:

    Yes to the Connie Willis; it’s a wonderful read! I’ve only read a few of hers (Passage absolutely gutted me), and this is a good reminder to get back to her on my TBR.

    FYI, Charlie Novak’s first Heather Bay novel, Like I Promised, is free for a few days on Amazon. I love this series which is great MM on the Yorkshire coast of England (which I know nothing about, but they’re great British small town, low angst, fun reads).

  8. KarenF says:

    To Say Nothing of the Dog is lovely, and a lot of fun. It’s the first of four (plus 1 or 2 short stories) novels set in the same time travel universe, where the time travelers are graduate students in history whose travels are supposed to be field research/strictly observational but… something always happens.

    The thing about this series, is that the books are tonally different from each other. To Say Nothing of the Dog is a comedy, but the next book, The Doomsday Book is very dark (taking place during two pandemics, the black plague, and one that seems predicative of COVID), and the Blackout/All Clear duology is more of an ensemble WWII mixed genre – with romance, adventure, and sad/bittersweet elements mixed in too) – and these two books live permanently on my keeper shelf. They are great reads.

    I’d normally recommend all four, but The Doomsday Book (which is actually the first one of the series that I read) could be pretty triggering these days.

  9. Ely says:

    I’ve never read M.C Beaton, but my mum was all about her Hamish MacBeth books. It looks like a bunch of her Regencies are Kindle Daily Deals, so I think I know what I’ll be reading this weekend.

    – Deirdre and Desire (The Six Sisters, Book 3)
    – Daphne (The Six Sisters, Book 4)
    – Diana The Huntress (The Six Sisters, Book 5)

    – Minerva (The Six Sisters, Book 1)

  10. Jessi says:

    @KarenF – I tried to borrow To Say Nothing of the Dog in the hard early days of the pandemic (I’m a healthcare worker & was looking for escapism) and I couldn’t get it but my library did have The Doomsday Book, so I borrowed that instead. HOLY CATS did bawl my eyes out. It was actually a really great book, but definitely not something I was prepared to read in mid-2020

  11. Tam says:

    DOOMSDAY BOOK made me bawl my eyes out. I’ve never forgotten it, but also, never re-read it. I read it in one night while doing graduate medieval stuff at Brasenose College, so it all felt very close to home. Alas, BNC still hasn’t quite mastered time travel.

    Thanks for the Queer your bookshelf link @flchen1 – I just bought How to Get a Girlfriend (when you’re a terrifying monster) – ff cozy fantasy romance.

  16. DiscoDollyDeb says:

    Layla Reyne’s WHAT WE MAY BE (referenced by flchen1 above) is a very good second-chance MMF. I wasn’t as caught up in the mystery side of things—but the book has one of the best ménage covers I’ve seen in a while (although, I emphatically assert that I did not choose to read the book because of its moody, rather downbeat in a good way, cover!, lol).

    To Say Mothing of the Dog is currently 6.99
